when to add more ventilation
I know I need to add more ventilation, just not sure exactly when.
Right now its a Lazutin style deep horizontal hive, 17" by 33" by 22" deep, with a follower board.
The entrance is a 1" diameter hole on the east side, right next to the south side.
Thing is the temperatures are still going down into the 40s for the next few days and they don't seem to be bearding.
I plan to drill some smaller holes, perhaps 1/4" or smaller, or whatever size would ventilate, but they cannot pass through.
Thank you for any feedback!
My grandfather and great-uncle kept bees and my fiancée's grandfather, too. I want to pass this tradition along.
